  1. select highlight.js theme for code highlighting

    It would be nice to support changing higlight.js theme.
    The default (zenburn?) code highlight theme is unreadable when presenting on projector.
    At least some black on white would be very useful.

    • Unlimited Speaker Notes

      I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
      I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.

        We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!

        Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.

          The presentation inside of the embedded iframe is already responsive. However you the embedding site will need to use CSS to resize the iframe element based on viewport size and layout.

          In some cases it might be enough to change the “width” attribute in the embed code to 100%.

          • easier to put in pictures

            I want to be able to just copy and paste pictures in my presentation instead of screen shoting something and then having to download it from my drive.

              Hey. It’s already possible to copy and paste images directly from your clipboard. Here’s an example where I right click to copy and press CMD+V to paste in the Slides editor: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/social/slides-copy-paste-image.gif

              Note that this only works if you haven’t already copied a block of content inside of the Slides editor. If you’ve already copied a block you can reload the editor. Those two conflict because we have our own copy-paste logic in the editor and can not tap into the operating system’s own logic.

            • Support 16:9 slide aspect ratio

              At conferences, most stages now have a 16:9 aspect ratio. It would be really great if slides will support authoring decks in that format (+ export).

                  We allow you to set background images from URL now. Look for the small link icon in the header of the window that appears when you’re prompted to select a background image.

                • Make all fragment styles reveal.js offers available in slides.com

                  I've got text that I want to show it changes over time by layering each version of the text on top of each other and use fragment to transition between them. It would be nice to select from all the available fragment styles reveal.js has (http://lab.hakim.se/reveal-js/#/7/1) but I'm most in need of the `current-visible` style.

                  • add support for Wistia embedded videos (specifically AutoPlay feature)

                    You offer AutoPlay for YouTube and Vimeo only, while Wistia, being a well known runner up, doesn't offer one.

                    Sure, you could use parameter ?autoPlay=true, but Slides.com does not play nicely with that and starts playing all iframes as soon as presentation loads, instead of when entering slide.

                    That bug is solved by using the provided AutoPlay feature, which is currently not offered for Wistia.

                    • Ability to rotate elements

                      It'd be great if there was an option to not only resize, but also rotate elements (eg images, text boxes etc.)

                      • Allow the user to select multiple items

                        It would be useful to be able to command-click to select more than one object at a time. I have been trying to make some cool shapes, but sadly I have to remake them every time I create a new slide piece by piece!

                        • Ability to add directed lines and arrows

                          I would love the ability to add simple lines with arrowheads to point from one element to another on my slides.

                          I am requesting this here because there really is no simple workaround. Users are forced to paste an image of a line with a 38° tilt and an arrowhead.

                          Of course, no line tool would be complete without dashed and dotted styles. Thank you for considering this suggestion.

                              Thanks for the feedback! A link to the knowledge base and help forum has been added to the bottom of the sidebar.

                              There was already a support link there but it’s only been visible to Pro users up until now. If this ends up increasing our support ticket queue too much we may have to revise. We’re a small team and have to prioritize speedy support for our paying customers.

                              While using phone as remote control would be nice to have the horizontal AND vertical controls...sometimes I use vertical slides as optional stuff I might want to skip...with remote it just plays them all.

                                It’s actually already possible to navigate both horizontally and vertically using the remote control view. Try swiping in the direction that you want to navigate. Tapping on the other hand steps through all slides in the presentation, both vertical and horizontal.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this isn’t possible since YAML isn’t supported by the syntax highlighting library that we’re using (highlight.js).


                                  UPDATE: YAML is now supported by highlight.js and available in the Slides editor.

                                • Copy individual slide between decks

                                  Making slides is usually a matter of copy-and-paste from an old deck into a new deck (at least in Powerpoint). Copying is either a selection of elements from a slide, or one or more complete slides.

                                  However I found it impossible to do copy-and-paste between different decks at slides.com. It is possible to clone an existing one - but what if it is too late or I want to copy from multiple sources?

                                  • Ability to change or remove block background colour

                                    In this presentation (only one slide) http://slides.com/zooomez/wow I have created an iframe containig an animated wowslider on a white background.

                                    It seems the iframe has a background colour (#f0f0f0).

                                    How can I remove this background or set its colour to #ffffff ?

                                    • Give us an option to not preload a slide

                                      I have a large presentation file with many iframes to demo content within.

                                      This causes the load of the presentation to lag whilst it spends ages preloading all of the content.

                                      Either give us a global switch to not preload or perhaps a control within the 'iframe' option that allows us to determine if the content is preloaded or loaded when the slide comes into view.

                                        Just confirmed this to be working. Iframes are only loaded for the three nearest slides. This is checked every time you navigate, if a new iframe appears within the 3-slide distance it will start loading.

                                      • Ability to set line-height

                                        Provide an interface option for configuring the line-height of text.

                                        • Better quality for PDF export

                                          Could we choose the PDF export quality (in pro version) ?
                                          For now, the assets (images) are really poor quality :/

                                            PDF export quality has been greatly improved and all font families and styles will now come through in the output.

                                            We replaced our whole PDF generation pipeline with new software. This change means that quality is higher and presentations will look identical to how they do in a modern browser (Safari 8 to be specific).

                                            This also applies to deck thumbnails.
